In the year 1804, Mr. Thomas Lister Parker, grandson of Edward Parker, Esq. (ætatis suæ 24), removed the stables from the front of the house, the steps also and straight walks, &c. &c., and levelled the bowling-green as it now is. The staircase, and some of the back apartments and offices, were altered, and the hall was ornamented with the armour and other curious, things found in the house. The windows containing the stained glass before alluded to, were put in the hall, and others made similar to them by Mr. Wright, of Leeds, and Mr. R. B. Harmden, of Cambridge. The different quarterings of the families allied to Browsholme, were hung on the walls. The ancient embroidered cushion was placed at the west end, over an old oak livery cupboard, richly carved, and used in former times as the sideboard. This was presented by Col. Hargreaves, of Ormerod House, near Burn

ley, in the county of Lancaster. Two others, but smaller, were in the house. A British battle-axe, found in the field near Preston; the buff leather jacket; the Roman stone found at Ribchestor, belong. ing to the 20th Legion (or Agricola's) ; a pair of boots of Charles the First's reign, and two large cannon-balls; and a most curious cross-bow, used as a military weapon, were presented by Thos. Clarke, Esq. of Waddow.
